SCOTTS VALLEY — A two-vehicle Mount Hermon Drive crash left a San Jose couple dead and a juvenile in critical condition Wednesday evening.
The Santa Cruz County Sheriff’s Office identified the deceased adults as Laurie E. Bryant, 58, and Steven L. Bryant, 62.
The adults, traveling in a gold sedan, collided head-on with a white commercial van shortly before 5 p.m., in the stretch of road between Skypark Drive and Lockhart Gulch Road. The van’s occupant was not injured, according to Scotts Valley Police detective Sgt. Meredith Roberts. The female child, who was in the sedan, was taken to an out-of-county trauma center for care, but was expected to survive, Robert said.
“We had earlier reports that the gold sedan was driving erratically, prior to the accident,” Roberts said.
Scotts Valley police had not completed its investigation into the cause of the crash Thursday.
